Amazon has revealed that a small typo was to blame when several high-profile websites and services were knocked offline earlier in the week – Hence the reason for Tuesday’s disrupted service of S3, part of Amazon’s Web Services, which provides hosting for websites and apps.

The company is now making several important changes to its system to avoid having the same problem in the future:

“While we are proud of our long track record of availability with Amazon S3, we know how critical this service is to our customers, their applications and end users, and their businesses,” the company said.

“We will do everything we can to learn from this event and use it to improve our availability even further.”
